More Exciting Book Happenings!

So the more I browse the book blogging community (because, let's face it, there's nothing on TV at 4:30 am), the more exciting events I find.  Instead of lumping them all together, I though I'd do a couple different posts on them, especially since some aren't until August.

I found this on a blog I was reading this morning, and I clicked on the button because of the awesomely cute tag.  The Cornucopia of Dystopia.  What an awesome name!  Anyway, basically this is an event hosted by a bunch of bloggers featuring several novels of dystopia.  Ever since I read The Hunger Games, I am a total fan of dystopia.  And I am excited to be following such a great event and finding out more about some books that are on my TBR list.  Plus, my bday is coming up, so....  maybe I can talk my family into getting me some books!  Here's the DL:

The event is hosted by The Bookish Type and A Tapestry of Words from March 21st through April 18th.  They will be featuring eight different novels.  Seventeen total bloggers will be involved with reviews, interviews, guest posts, and giveaways about these books.
Books featured:
  1. Bumped by Megan McCafferty
  2. Memento Nora by Angie Smibert
  3. XVI by Julia Karr
  4. Possession by Elana Johnson
  5. Wither by Lauren DeStefano
  6. Delirum by Lauren Oliver
  7. Awaken by Katie Kacvinsky
  8. Dark Parties by Sara Grant
Looks good, right?  Seventeen boggers have worked together to provide an awesomely compact schedule with several things for each day!  I know I am adding those events to my calendar right now.  Head over to The Bookish Type's post on the event for the complete schedule.  Hope you guys are as excited as I am!
